The idea of Republicans in the U.S. House not having Ohio Rep. John Boehner as speaker come next week is catching on in the media.


Fox News reported on Tuesday about North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones’ comments before Christmas that there was a “small group, and we – about 16, 18 – and we’re hoping to have a name of a sitting member of Congress that we can call out their name.”
Only hours earlier, the Daily Caller had cited the same local radio interview, which was reported by Buzzfeed at the time.
But WND had reported on Dec. 19 on Jones’ comments, as part of the publicity over the new DON’T BE YELLOW, DUMP BOEHNER NOW CAMPAIGN, which encourages constituents to let all 247 GOP members of the House majority know they need to pick another speaker for the coming Congress.
It’s because of Boehner’s decision not to fight Barack Obama’s amnesty and Obamacare, both of which now are funded through 2015, even though the GOP will hold the majority in both the House and the Senate – a stunning victory handed to the party by voters – starting next week.
BizPacReview notes that there’s been talk of Boehner’s removal before, but there’s been no action.
The report points out now there would need to be only 30 conservative GOP members denying Boehner their votes for him to face removal.
